CloudMax™ Open SwitchOur CloudMax™ Open Switch series can be integrated as part of a converged cloud infrastructure. As a software-agnostic networking switch that can support multiple network operating systems, Open Switch is the modern answer to eliminating the rigidity and vendor-lock in of legacy distributed network architectures.
Cumulus Linux Network OS
Cumulus Linux is a networking OS that offers the entirety of the Linux experience on networking hardware. Existing open source and commercial Linux applications run natively on industry standard switches, and rich data center networking solutions are augmented to support large scale CLOS fabrics and next generation architectures. On the Cumulus Linux Network OS, new applications are developed and integrated rapidly, enabling time to market and furthering innovation. Cumulus Linux distributions also support a broad range of industry standard hardware, which comes with an Open Network Install Environment (ONIE) for zero touch install of the network operating system of choice.
Faster - High capacity fabrics, unprecedented price-performance, rapid innovation
Easier - Simplified network automation, consistent tools for network and compute, flexible solutions
Affordable - Lower OPEX/CAPEX, break free from vendor lock-in, large ecosystem of Linux apps
Cumulus is the missing piece needed to build a modern, scalable data center, bringing the same paradigms of manageability, clustering, monitoring and orchestration that are applied at the server and virtual machine layer to the networking layer, and realizing the full promise of the software-defined data center.
Cumulus Linux Network OS
Rich Data Center Networking Solutions
Enhanced open networking solutions, including support for IPv4/v6 routing suite, Layer 2 suite, security ACLs, QoS, and VXLAN. These features are at the foundation of traditional and modern data center architectures such as large-scale leaf/spine fabrics, and network virtualization.
Leverages the existing Linux kernel data structures to allow seamless integration with existing Linux applications, both open source and commercial versions.
Large Scale Orchestration and Automation
Leverages Linux extensibility to support any scripting language, enables automation with zero-touch install and provisioning, and integrates seamlessly with orchestration tools such as Chef, Puppet, and CFEngine.
Efficient Troubleshooting and Monitoring
Leverages traditional Linux and networking tools such as SNMPv2/v3 and SPAN/ERSPAN, integrates with advanced monitoring tools such as Collectd, Ganglia, Nagios, and provides advanced troubleshooting with tools such as Prescriptive Topology Module for topology consistency.
